.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 320 PM EDT Sun Jun 25 2017/

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/...
Frontal boundary is slowly sinking into the far southern reaches of
the forecast area. Drier air already filtering in, but better drying
continues poised just northwest of the state. This should continue
pushing southeast overnight through tomorrow. Mid-level moisture and
another approaching short wave in the northwest upper flow keeps
some increased cloud cover over the region, however I do not think
we will see any light precipitation squeezed out across the north
like we saw with todays weak wave. Whether or not we see any
isolated to scattered convection lingering past this evening across
the far south/southeast will depend on how far we can push the
better drying. Should see the coverage and intensity wane quickly
this evening and I am inclined to keep any slight chances confined
to the farthest reaches of the southeast corner for tomorrow.
Instability remains marginal at best through this period and any
severe thunderstorm risk is minimal.

LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/...
No major changes to the long term. A weak impulse moving around
the upper trough into the TN Valley could bring a slight chance of
showers/thunderstorms to the northern counties on Tuesday.
Surface high pressure centered over the Appalachians should push
even more dry air into GA for Wednesday. Increasing southerly flow
from the Gulf and Atlantic will bring a rapid return of tropical
moisture back into the forecast area for the remainder of the long
term. Models hint at a short wave in the northern Gulf that may
enhance pops Friday and into the weekend.
